Sunday, 20 October 2013

Al-Karam Publications proudly releases Shaykh Pirzada’s five-volume literary masterpiece on the Qur’an, ‘Tafsir Imdad al-Karam’.

ImageThe first ever detailed commentary on the Qur’an to be written in the United Kingdom for the twenty first century audience has been released and is now available through Al-Karam Publications. The author and Mufassir (Qur’anic Exegete), Shaykh Muhammad Imdad Hussain Pirzada, is already an established scholar, writer and teacher and someone who has continuously served Islam, the Muslims and the British community since 1974. His services to the people and the faith come in various forms and are certainly multi-faceted. He has been the instrumental leader behind the successful academic and educational institution of Jamia Al-Karam; the long and short term humanitarian relief projects around the world of Muslim Charity Helping the Needy; the written works in various languages on human rights, contemporary issues, religious education and other themes published by Al-Karam Publications; the establishment of the UK Branch of the World Association for Al-Azhar Graduates; the public conference platform of the Gateway to Divine Mercy project as well as the founding of the British Muslim Forum. The latter years have seen Shaykh Pirzada devote most of his time to writing, in particular the commentary of the Qur’an and currently the commentary to the Sahih al-Bukhari.

The five-volume Tafsir Imdad al-Karam is the product of the relentless decade-long hard work, research and literary efforts of Shaykh Pirzada and at present stands as the magnum opus of his written works. It is the first such commentary that delves deep into straightforward and logical examinations and explanations of the Qur’anic teaching in light of the modern world, the Western context and the contemporary issues and challenges at the forefront of the world’s attention at the dawn of this twenty first century. Shaykh Pirzada began this great and blessed task on 30 September 2000 (1 Rajab 1421 AH) at Jamia Al-Karam in Retford and completed the final lines of this commentary on 7 March 2011 (2 Rabi’ al-Thani 1432 AH) at al-Masjid al-Haram in Makkah, Saudi Arabia.

The full set of five volumes in original Urdu Language is now available through Al-Karam Publications ( The first volume consists of the chapters al-Fatihah (1) to al-An’am (6); the second volume consists of the chapters al-A’raf (7) to Banu Isra’il (17); the third volume consists of the chapters al-Kahf (18) to al-Sajdah (32); the fourth volume consists of the chapters al-Ahzab (33) to al-Tur (52) and the final volume consists of the chapters al-Najm (53) to al-Nas (114).
